The Gardeners Rest

The Gardeners Rest

The Gardeners Rest is nestled in the fast-changing district of Neepsend, one mile to the north-east of Sheffield, and it is the only operating pub in a district that is famous for its connections with the gas, steel and rail industries in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. The area lost much of its population in the last quarter of the 20th century as traditional industries declined and shops, pubs and schools closed.

The recent regeneration of the adjacent Kelham Island district, the approved demolition order on the old Neepsend Cannon Brewery across the road, the conversion of old industrial buildings into flats, and the emergence of a local bakery and Peddlers Market are early indicators that the formerly industrial area of Neepsend is now back on the map.

The Gardeners Rest, which opened in 1898, remains a much-loved base for a diverse community of individuals and community groups, many of whom come together to socialise and choose to make the pub their home from home.
